Huron Valley Martin Luther King Jr. Day Celebration- 9th Annual March on Main Street:

Monday, Jan 20, 2014

Line-up starts at 12:15PM at Prospect Hill Shopping Center located at 516 Highland Ave., Milford, MI 48357.

1:00PM- March On Main Street

2014’s March on Main Street is from Prospect Hill to Central Park. The committee hopes to see everyone who recognizes the significance of Dr. King’s leadership and message in today’s world in attendance to support the holiday’s message of serving the community.  

Josh White Jr. is this year's end of march music performer.  See http://www.joshwhitejr.com/ for more information. We are truly lucky to have him as a part of this year's celebration!

Groups are encouraged to march together with signs designating their support of MLK Day.

For people who are concerned about walking in the march, but who still want to participate, the Carls Family YMCA will be providing a bus which will follow the marchers down Main Street and stop at Central Park for the musical performance. The bus will return to Prospect Hill at the conclusion of the event.

Immediately following this year’s March on Main Street, the Huron Valley MLK Day Committee will be hosting a Community Volunteer Fair designed to give citizens of all ages a chance to connect with ways to give back to their own communities.  We are identifying many community service projects, volunteer programs, as well as non-profits and charity organizations where people can pledge to donate time throughout the year.

Our Community Volunteer Fair will run from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Monday, January 20th at Milford Presbyterian Church (located at 238 N. Main, Milford – corner of N. Main and Liberty).  We will have a concert from our main music performer, Josh White Jr., from 2:00-3:00 as a part of the Fair, and then time for participants to finish checking out the booths and signing up for involvement.

Marchers are also encouraged to dine in downtown Milford, where submissions for the art/essay/speech competition will be on display, before making their way to Prospect Hill for the march.
